The Case for the Preservation of R&D Project Websites

« About 1 year ago, Arquivo.pt performed an experiment to preserve the .EU domain.

We are now trying to focus on preserving sites of R&D projects. To this end, our first idea was to use the EU Open Data Portal to identify these project URLs. The problem is that from the 25 608 R&D projects funded by FP7 listed by the EU Open Data Portal, only 7.9% had an associated project URL.

So, the first main challenge is to identify R&D project web sites to be preserved.

And you can help! »

Pionnières dans l’archivage du .eu, les archives du Web portugaises s’intéressent aujourd’hui à la préservation des sites de projets, notamment européens, et de leurs résultats intermédiaires.
